In honor of St. Patrick's Day I borrowed some of the photographs my daughter took when she was studying at the University College Cork, Ireland from January 2006 through May 2006. Judith said it was interesting to her that the parade in Cork had very little green. There were dancers and dragons and lots of umbrellas because it was pouring down raining but the costumes were not the green which is often featured in St. Patrick's Day Parades in the U.S.
I am so glad that she had the opportunity to go to a St. Patrick's Day parade in Ireland and I'm pleased that she took a lot of pictures which gave me an idea of what it was like.
The photograph below is of St. Fin Barre's Cathedral which is located across the street from the university apartments where she lived during her time in Cork. The photograph below is one she took looking east down the river in Cork.
The shot below was one she took at a beach near Cork. I love the rocks.
Happy St. Patrick's Day and thanks to my daughter for her photographs from Ireland.
